Bully Free School Project
To onboard students this year with Project Time norms and expectations, the students went through checkpoint activities and completed a final product. The final product was a poster that illustrated how to make Carter Lomax a Bully Free School. The Cognitive Skill associated with the project was Norms and Active Listening. Students were given the cognitive skill rubric for Norms and Active Listening, then scored their group based on the language in the cognitive skill rubric. Below is pictures from Mrs. Lambert's class creating their posters.
Concept Units have begun!
